obama. she did not mention the islamic extremist views. the on going threat to women's rights is the subject of the documentary honor diaries, a film that features hirsi ali. they sentenced her to die for outspokenness against violence in the muslim world, but she will not be silenced by threats. i spoke with her about this new video just a short time ago. >> it took us a long time to get interested in this cause because we are so determined to separate the outcome, the kidnappings, the violence, first conversions from its basis. >> we don't want to touch it? >> we don't want to touch it. it's not only us. it's the case in nigeria. i grew up in kenya. we listen to many well-meaning muslims who says it has nothing to do with islam and the koran. it's an aberration. what we're seeing time and time and time again is sadly it's not an aberration. >> explain that, though. we had somebody on the program recently talking about the difference in her mind, she wrote a book between sheeriaism and islam. they said they are different and peace loving who say orldwide sheeriaism have nothi
extinguished man's darkest impulses. >> is this the p.c. presidency? >> islam is providing a disproportionate share of radical nut bags killing people right now. >> the president's comments on nigerian terrorists landing him in hot water, even from the left. >> there is no mention here of connecting this to the religion. >> bill maher on the attack. >> liberals do not stand up for liberalism. liberalism means one, mostly equality of women, free speech. no death threats. >> "on the record" investigates tonight and. >> what science tells bus the after life there is none. when you die you are dead. >> atheists chaplains in the military how did that work? >> it's just total nonsense, the idea of having a chaplain who is an atheist. >> i have got 99 problems with [bleep] >> he has got 99 problems and this is one. beyonce's sister brutally attacking rapper jay-z. >> also, fired. a teacher breaks up this fight with a broom and now she is out of a job. and she is right here to go "on the record" tonight. up first is, there political correctness and is the obama administration tiptoeing around not wan
by a distinguished studio audience including women who have lived under the rise of radical islam. as the search for nearly 300 missing nigerian school girls continues after they were captured by boko haram a month ago and rather than calling for military action, liberals formulated a social media campaign to bring back the school girls. it started when the first lady michelle obama posted this photo of her twitter page using the hashtag bring back our girls. the spread and other democrats including senator followed suit and posted similar pictures. i repeatedly said this and will say it again tonight, terrorists likely don't read twitter and if they did, it would have zero impact and probably only embolden them and the only thing they will react to probably is bullet in their head. that's not the only concern when it comes to the ignorance on the left because despite multiple requests, the u.s. state department under hillary clinton refused to designate boko haram a foreign terrorist organization while she was secretary of state leaving the u.s. with far less intelligence on the group and it's
is hassana hassanal bolkiah. they failed to recognize the rise of radical islam over the years, guess who did? on this program. we're seeing how brutal and inhuman sharia law is. here is what sharia law will represent, saudi arabia one and iran's but require the that women obtain permission from their husbands for their daily freedoms, beating of disocho bead yenlt women and girls, execution of people that are gay. women in afghanistan under sharia can't work, can't go to school. people's hands get chopped off. if you get raped as a woman, you need four male eyewitnesss. a country that sits on the brink of the law where women have no rights, i hear one thing from the deafening voices of liberal women's groups, silence. we bring in our studio audience for reaction. brooke, good to see you. you've been on this program, you richard, we talk a lot about terror. what do you think of the hashtag twitter campaign, thoughts? >> a lot of people argue it's the harsh tag diploma see that shed a light on the war not just in the middle east but all over the world but it's disingenuous because it's the bru
and declared the area under their control, which is an islamic state. but their pact did not last long. fighters backed by al qaeda turned on the mlma and took over the cities. the fighters began to push towards the government controlled south. in january last year the french were asked to intervene. they did so and pushed out the al qaeda-backed rebels. within a few months the government signed a peace deal to pave the way for elections. but the truth was fragile and broke down earlier this month. al jazeera's correspondent is with me now to talk about this ceasefire. now, we have been in the situation before but the previous ceasefire broke down and nothing happened after that. more violence conditioned. what is the difference this time around. >> the situation changed. when the ceasefire was signed in june, al qaeda was very strong in the north, and had already a presence there. and everyone was unhappy with that situation, and the rebels, the m l.a. rebels, the tower egg and the arab rebels felt that they had to give more so that they can five, and they give a lot in the ceasefire.
to look at the ignorance from the left when it comes to the rise of radical islam. as the search for nigerian school girls continues after being kidnapped by boko haram liberals formulated a stoegs media campaign to try to bring back the kidnapped school girls. it started when the first lady michelle obama posted this photo using the hash tag bring back our girls. the hash tag spread and other democrats including senator mccull ski followed suit and posted similar pictures like the one you see there. i repeatedly said this terrorists don't likely read twitter if they did it would have zero impact on them. the only thing they would react to is probably a bullet to the head. that is not the only concern when it comes to ignorance from the left. despite multiple requests they refused to designate boko haram a terrorist organization while she was secretary of state leaving the u.s. far less intelligence on the group and the ties to al qaeda. the ignorance of the left is not limited to washington and it continued this week in holed wouldn't. some spoke out against sharia law only afte

nationalism and variants of religious extremism including radical islam and jewish extremism and the christian identity movement and there are other issues of movement including radical pro-life groups and not surprisingly the prison system as an incubator of extremism and finally although most extremist or not terrorists than most terrorists have been influenced by extremist subcultures. so i will discuss extremist terrorists as well. and i will discuss some signs of convergence in extremist subcultures and this includes illustrating this trend and finally in conclusion i will talk about the implications of some current trends and how they relate to political extremism. so my book endeavors to put these variants of extremism in context. the first, let's look at the extreme right. during the 1990s the extreme right appeared to gain ground as a social movement but the movement suffered a series of setbacks in the aftermath of 9/11. many of the movement's key leaders died or were arrested or prosecuted, but the financial crisis in 2008 and the election of rock obama that same year catalyzed the

's friday night. let's roll. the years the left has turned a blind eye toward radical islam. that is until the very real horrors of sharia law appear on the doorstep of a popular hollywood hotel. >> okay, maybe i won't hold my event there until they change this. >> plus, is john kerry blaming the kidnapping of 300 nigerian schoolgirls on poverty? tonight the ignorance of the left goes on full display. >> everybody should have a fair shot. >> the president is not the only major world figure calling for redistribution of wealth. we're going to tell you what pope francis is now saying that's raising a lot of eyebrows. >>> and the riot express rolls into the hannity studios. nolan ryan is here. >>> tonight hollywood hypocrisy is on full display as some celebrities finally speak out against sharia law. late last month, the sultan of brunei implemented sharia law in his country. he owns the lavish beverley hills hotel. celebrities such as jay leno, l ellen degeneres are coming out against this. >> what year is this? 1814? it is 2014. we sit around here and okay evil flourishes when good people
did not bring the islamic brotherhood of procedure to egypt. maybe elected by the egyptian people. at that time when we start announcing, qatar announced their help and aid to egypt, it was through when -- was there and when the prime minister announced for egypt. before islamic brotherhood come to power, way before. and we start doing that before the islamic brotherhood come. when they come we continue because they been elected by their own people. we have no problem by electing. some of our brothers they don't like or they disagree, let me put it with the islamic brother hoods. it's their right to do that. some of them think that assisi is legitimate. let me tell you what about assisi come to power which he according to come to power within a month or two month. >> rose: election's in june. >> yeah. and six months later we have like what they say two million or three million in tahrir square and they say we don't want anymore assisi, we need x or y. and we say well this is legitimate. now we have to change the president again and we have to change the persecution again. so we m
published this week: >> or when the islamic revolution hair, they were cut off from the west in part because of religious reasons. iran has some problems with using dead hotties and because the west shortly after imposed sanction and didn't have the resources, technology or structure to really continue with deceased organ donation. so they decided to focus on living donation peers to the simpler old fashioning way of dealing with the transplant shortage. this was a nasa rationalized he may think he caused 80% to 90% of people who need organs need kidneys. so they focused on the largest part of the population that needed help. while we focused on everybody at the same time and we focused on finding the technologies we could to keep organs viable and transport them quickly and do everything we could to get them from cadavers. getting cadavers made sense because i put a living person at risk for kidney if you can get a cadaver. the important point here is they met in two different directions. aaron spent 30 years in prison if living donor program while we spent 30 years concentrating on her dec
extremism including radical islam for jewish extremism and the christian identity movement. there are single issue movements including echo extremism and radical pro-life groups. not surprisingly, the prison system is an incubator of extremism, and finally, although most extremists are not terrorists, most terrorists have been influenced by extremist subcultures. so i will discuss extremist terrorism as well. in addition i will discuss some signs of convergence and extremist subcultures. in the cases of tamerlan tsarnaev and finally in the conclusion i will talk about the implications of the current trends and how they relate to political extremism. so my book endeavors to put these variants of extremism in context. first let's look at the extreme right. during the 1990s, the extreme right appears to gain the ground as a social movement, but the movement suffered a series of setbacks in the aftermath of 9/11. many of the leaders died or were arrested and prosecuted. but the financial crisis in 2008 and the election of barack obama in the same year catalyzed the movement. in 2011, the law cen
, and this is "the five." is the world finally waking up to the growing threat of islamic terror. we've warned about the escalating attacks on christians worldwide. now with the kidnappings of nearly 300 school girls in nigeria, our government, celebrities and international community seem to be finally paying some attention. first lady michelle obama has joined an online campaign to find and free the missing girls. angelina jolie has long been a woman's rights advocate. she's now calling for their release and urging action against boko haram. >> i'm absolutely sickened by it. if the world does nothing, then they get away with this, then we set this horrible precedentist think it's extremely important that something is done immediately to try to find these girls, to try to bring them home and god forbid we can't, we have to still bring these men to justice. >> the muslim terrorists of boko haram are waging war against western education. hoping to raise awareness is the pakistani school girl shot in the head by the taliban. >> i think we should not remain silent. this is my feeling, that if we remain
where they disagree -- that meet put it that way -- with the islamic brotherhood. it is their right to do that. some of them think that he is legitimate. what about if he comes to power, which he is going to come to power within a month or a two -- >> elections are in june. >> and six months later we have 2 million or 3 million in tahrir square and they say we need x or y. and we say that this is legitimate. now we have changed the president again and we have to change the constitution again. we might have a case every one year if people do not like the president that they can change the constitution and change the president, change the parliament. this is what happened in egypt. i am not supporting the islamic brotherhood. i am not fond of them or the others. at least if i were to put it this way, we have to respect what the people choose. we are not a full democratic country in qatar. we are a monarchy. we accept to live together in this way. but after 20 years, a new idea will come to develop this relation between the monarchy and the people. we are doing this since 40 years. muc
, it was meant to grow religion naturally outside the governans of the united states. islam is a different religion. islam believes a lot about how it is part of your whole life, including systems of governans. we have to encourage those streams of islam that are oking at it that way and invite them to look at it that way. we believe in democracy but we're islammists. look what happened to them. you saw it. so the guy in the beginning of he film, when i say mohammed abbas and i rode toward the square. that guy, the kid, who was so classically like my muse in he is from a poor part of cairo. and his father died from hepatitis. you know how bad your health care system has to be to die from hepatitis? and he dies from it. the muslim brotherhood hears about this family where the father has died and left behind a boy and his two sisters who are young, and they move in and begin to help them. that muslim brotherhood helps him at home, he goes to work in a printing press. he's like to so many egyptians. he never forgot that the muslim brotherhood helped him when his father died. so he's in the mu

, radical islam and the clash of civilizati civilization. the u.s. is joining to rescue schoolgirls kidnapped by a terrorist group in nigeria. they have vowed to sell the girls into slavery, claiming a law allows him to do so. >> in hollywood, boycotting hotels owned by the sultan of brunei after imposing anti-gay laws in his country. >> i like to think all people are good. when they realize this is going on, hopefully they will do something about it. there's nothing extreme happening here. these are not feminist waccos. they are women protecting women and gay people protecting. i don't know, berlin, 1933, hello. does it seem that far off from the holocaust? >> this latest clash of civilizations exposing the truth face of islam? joining me with reaction from portland, oregon, the national spokesperson for the muslim community and from phoenix, the president of the american islamic forum for democracy. gentlemen, it's good to see you. this is heart breaking. i covered this on my radio show a few days after we heard about this. this is a couple weeks ago. as a mother, you send your ch

. on today's show, we will take you around the world starting in nigeria. with the actions of an islamic terror group have brought condemnation from across the globe. where did boko haram come from, and what are they capable of? also the big question on u krin right now is will president putin make a deal? i will ask henry kissinger who has spent more time with the russian leader than any other american. >>> and who is the world's number one economy, china or the united states? there's been a lot of information and misinformation out there recently. we will sort it out. >>> all that plus why one curmudgeon said the movie "groundhog day" is a great addition to life. >>> first, here's my take. in foreign policy there is one quick way into the history books. make a major mistake. we can be sure with lyndon johnson and george w. bush that no matter what else was said of them, their decision to lead to intervention and war will be long discussed. the second path to big success is actually less short. nixon's opening to china was quickly seen as historic, but harry truman's many bold decisions

the islamic world is what other enemies of the state have have been. >> the plant -- the black panthers were terrorist groups? >> yes. but the terrorism and false the understanding that the fbi and cia were deeply involved sending their own agents hid to these organizations. a and i have the evidence as well as this is not the secret city more but actually pokey supposed to do at that moment but said they would provoke the situation from within to take it upon himself so that allows the forces of law and order to make the rest. so that happened over and over again. >> was 9/11 a political act? >> that is a complicated story and four historians we don't fully understand yet to tell lee get the distance and the documents that greedy to fully understand. >> and with the political transition a number of acts not what it seems to be but a climactic movement to a number of different streams. the 1953 cia sponsored overthrow with a capital love to rob it is public information. the irradiance never forgot about that. is and our support of the shot turning into the ayatollah was the consequence. and
or three years ago, you know how time flies, called islam is not the solution for the problem. i argued the issue is much more about how different segments of these communities can learn to live together democratically as opposed to having a kind of peaceful coexistence or not so peaceful coexistence in an authoritarian system. i think, therefore, that the identity issue is a large but many people were surprised by it. i remember a piece about six months ago when he said he was shocked that the issue of secular islam is egypt has loomed so large. i was thinking my gosh this is a man who knows egypt well, but sometimes it's not easy to sort of stand back what you know and see the terrain. the terrain was very much organized. the reason i was not so surprised about the fact that things shifted so quickly from the focus of a social and economic justice and dignity to a struggle over identity is that the political system that in large part been organized around what i call protection racket systems in which governments regime is backed by strong military in many cases, provided social, econ
that we're going to free our muslim brothers from the corrupt nigeria. they pull this islam is a freeing element for us against the corruption of the west. >> you hear boko haram referred to as anti-christian, anti-secular, but hasn't given them more social space to islam in the north allowing the introduction of sharia law as a governing legal structure in many of the northern states? hasn't some of this fight already been fought and won by muslim activists? >> well, that is a very good question, and i think one thing that we need to understand is that boko haram cannot be in isolation of the social economic and political context of nigeria. the northeast is one of the most impoverished areas in nigeria despite all the news we hear about the economy in nigeria. high unemployment, high i will liilliteracy and many living in difficult conditions. boko haram took advantage of that, and the way the nigerian security forces mismanaged the 2009 conflict. they went underground and they became more violent and oppressive. what we're seeing now is actually, boko haram claims to be muslims. they
